Probably too harsh on him but I just dont see Gagner as a 4M player.
My worry as well but $4 million IMO is a fair number based on what he brings to the table. $5 million is nutty IMO but I'm not the man signing the checks so it's not my call. At $4 million he'd be tradeable unless he really regresses/gets hurt. At $5 million? I'm not so sure. We'd probably have to eat a million $ of cap hit to get a good return for him.
